Colleen was married to Jerald (Jerry) Reichert at the English Lutheran Church in Ellsworth, Wisconsin on September 8, 1951.  To this union two children were born, Jill Anne, and Jack Arthur.

Colleen was an avid reader and belonged to several book clubs. She enjoyed playing cards and was a member of a local Bridge Club.  Win or lose, she was a loyal Green Bay Packer fan.
